Nelson Newsletter - January 2016

Faithwalkers Conference 
Danelle and I began the New Year with hundreds of Christians at Faithwalkers in Asheville, NC. We especially enjoyed the one-on-one conversations with friends from other churches, and singing our favorite old Scripture songs. Like Paul said to the Romans when they were together, “that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith.” My seminar, “How to Win Your Family to Christ,” went very well with good attendance & many heartfelt questions. You can listen to the teaching on line by going to this link: http://www.gccweb.org/podcasts/episode-2746/reaching-your-family-for-christ-steve-nelson.mp3  

Singing the Oldies Together

Barbara Wilson & Danelle

Atlanta House Church Our church recently discussed our vision for reaching unbelievers in Atlanta and multiplying disciples. We want our vision to be God’s vision, not ours. “So, King Agrippa, I did not prove disobedient to the heavenly vision, but kept declaring both to those of Damascus first, and also at Jerusalem and then throughout all the region of Judea, and even to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, performing deeds appropriate to repentance.” Acts 26:19-20 Our church discussed specific steps of faith God wants each of us to take. What specific people are we loving, praying for, and wanting to come to Christ? We had some open and honest discussion. Pray for God to give us His love for unbelievers! Especially pray for opportunities for me to speak with Mario, Jairo, Michael, and Carolina.  

Clemson Conference Brian Bridgeman invited Danelle and I to come speak about the family February 11-12th to their Clemson student group. These students elected to have us speak on the family, because they felt it was a great need of theirs. We were impressed at their foresight and maturity, as well as their honesty in regards to many of their family backgrounds. As we all know, the family has been attacked, questioned, and abandoned by many, making it confusing and difficult to know what to do as a young single person. Please pray for our time to be Spirit-led and encouraging to each of those who attend. Pray too for God to bring all He wants to come.

 Prayer Requests   

1. Clemson Conference. Pray for Danelle and I as we teach on the family, February 11-12th.      
2. Atlanta House Church. Ask God to transform our hearts to care about those without Christ.
3. Unbelievers Salvation. Pray with us for Mario, Jairo, Carolina, and other friends in Atlanta to turn to Christ in true repentance and faith.

We are thankful for you,

Steve and Danelle
